The staff was friendly at this KOA, but unfortunately the campground is quite dated. The playground had totally rusted parts that made it dangerous and useless. The pool is a bit larger than some bathtubs. The bathrooms are dated back some 40+ years, and they were not clean early in the morning before use. The sites are gravel with weeds between them, and there is a warning about aligators attacking your dog at the pond. The staff was quite friendly and nice, but I still would not stay in this park again. KOA needs to review its parks.

The staff was very friendly, but beyond that there are many many problems with this old tired park. First, it is miles off the highway reached by a winding twisting road that is not easy to navigate by big rigs. WARNING some of the sites assigned to 5th wheels are not navigable. The "BigRig Pull Through" we were assigned to would have damaged our camper had we not been carefull. The steep entry would have caused the truck sides to hit any 5th wheel. We had to back up, go around, and back into our "pull through" site. Wi Fi is useless even close to the main building. Connections at site are often at the wrong end of the site. Asked for 50 amp, site had 30 amp. Low trees all over will hit your camper. Although the entry is straight in an easy, the very steep exit with twisting s curves and steep transitions could cause your truck bed side rails to hit your 5th wheel. This is a tired old park that is not at all big rig friendly. The staff was friendly, but it just doesn't make up for this dated park.

While many KOA parks are giving KOA's a bad name, this is one of the best KOA parks. This one is truly a big rig friendly park with no low overhanging trees, easy access, and easy level, pull through sites. Nice small restaurant on site as well as a very nice pool, amusements, playground, entertainment, and more. Not that far off the interstate for an overnight stop. Clean, well maintained, and excellent staff.

Expensive, but a wonderfull campground. The negatives: The pet loop is quite narrow, and appears to be designed for tent campers of years ago. This makes for a very tight approach to your site. The sites are not easy to back into. Not only are the not angled enough for easy entry, but large trees across from your site will interfere with your backing in. Other than that this is an excellent park at the Disney resort. Nice pools, campground entertainment at night, store with plenty to choose from, playgrounds, restaurant and bar, transportation around the campground and to the theme parks, the list goes on. In spite of the tight narrow access loops, this is a wonderfull park.

A somewhat tired park that served well for our stop on the way through. Friendly and helpfull staff, but nothing special about the sites. Close sites, but room for slide outs and the pull throughs were level.

It's hard to say negative things about this park, because the staff is so helpfull and friendly. However, big riggers should be aware that this is, in spite of KOA's claim, NOT big rig friendly. The exit transition is so steep that you clearly risk bottoming out or hitting your 5th wheel on your truck sides. Negotiating the campground turns to the pull through sites is very tight. None of the pull throughs we saw were level. Aside from those negatives, this is a nice woodsy quiet campground. It is simply not big rig friendly.

I'm really sorry to have to give this campground a lower rating, but I feel the other reviewers are just not giving enough weight to the constant and overwhelming nearby interstate highway noise. The campground is nice, the owners and staff are friendly, but be prepared for loud constant roaring truck traffic right adjacent to the campground all night long. Sorry, but you should know this before you decide to stay. If you are used to road noise, great, but if you aren't, well, be prepared.

Friendly staff, nice pond, indoor pool and facilities, nice dog walk areas, and basically a pleasant KOA to stay at in the Finger Lakes/Corning area. Sites available for big rig pull throughs to tents nestled at the edge of the trees. We will be back again, because we visit the Finger Lakes Wine Country every year. Go to Suzannes Restaurant on the East side of the lake for the finest food in the area at a husband and wife run business.

We gave this pleasant campground a 10 out of 10 due to its attractive setting with a pond, and its very friendly staff. We felt very welcome, and the staff organized several social events including a nice pancake breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

Attractive campground on the shore of Missouri River within walking distance to a restaurant, pool, and other indoor facilities of the adjacent hotel for your use. The only real drawback noted was that some of the sites along the river are not very level at all.

Date of Stay:

Frankly, this campground was not as good as we had expected from the other reviews. Some of the sites are horribly unlevel. I'm not sure how to prevent this, because we were assigned one while the campground was half empty and we had especially asked for a very level site. They let us move, but what if the campground were full? Be sure to ask if you need to be near a bathroom, because some sections are way too far away to use bath houses. This was not a problem for us. THE ADVERTISED WIFI IS BASICALLY FALSE ADVERTISING. Do not count on wifi. I'm not talking about being close enough for a good signal, because we had one. I'm talking about the fact that their satellite wifi is much much worse than dialup. Even basic e-mail was unacceptable.

A very well kept maintained KOA we used on our way east. Some special sites included a paved patio with umbrella table etc. Typical KOA type campground with nice facilities, but otherwise rows of campsites. No real complaints, and a good place to stop while passing through.

This is the most under rated RV campground in Yellowstone. We arrived expecting the "paved parking lot", and much to our pleasant surprise we instead found relatively easy to back into angled paved sites with enough side room to park our truck as well. There is some grass and small trees between sites, but due to wildlife, no tables or firepits. The loops are separated by bands of woods. If you have an rv with hookups, then do yourself a favor and stay at Fishing Bridge. Yellowstone is not a place to sit and stay in the campground. You'll spend most of the day elsewhere in the park, so come back to Fishing Bridge to enjoy full facilities. The other no facility campgrounds are just not that good enough to do without hookups. Remember, this advice is from campers in a small Truck Camper, and not a large class A with a big screen TV. Fishing Bridge is ok. The only real complaint is that the Government thinks water runs up hill at the sewage connections.

I know others love this park, but frankly it is over rated for Yellowstone. The site we were assigned to was basically a wide bend along one of the park loop roads. We edged as close as we could to a nearby tree just off the pavement, and were afraid to put the slide out for fear of it being hit by passing traffic. Please take note that we were in just a truck camper, and not a large RV. Yet we were assigned a totally unacceptable site, even for such a small RV. We saw numerous larger campers assigned to unacceptable sites for their size. Many sites here are over rated for anything beyond a tent site. Those who rated this park higher, probably were assigned to one of the more acceptable sites. If you can use hookups, then you are far better off at Fishing Bridge. Otherwise, good luck on being assigned a reasonable site. Luckily, we only stayed one night, and then had reservations for a week at Fishing Bridge.

A very well kept and maintained park. The managers were especially nice and caring. I would give them "The Managers of the Year Award" for campgrounds. They went out of the way to make sure we were satisfied, and were enjoying our stay. The only drawbacks to this park are the lack of a swimming pool and some other amenities. Lakeside swimming is available across the street, but limited.
